Well, personally, I will not be sad AT ALL if I don't have to mash the Shield Block button all the freaking boss fight.I mean, I can see Warrior tanks being more of a Mitigation-Trough-Avoidance tanks come Wrath. Critical Block, increased Rage from Dodge/Parry/Block kinda makes that work. The removal of Crushing blows will also help Druid tanks, which are, IMO, becoming more and more like warrior tanks. I have no problem with that, as long as we still get to tank. I do have one problem with Blizzard not clearly stating which role they want the 4 tanking classes to play. Okay, so if DKs are Magic, Paladins are AOE, Warriors are superior Single-Target tanks, then where do Druids come in? BTW, looking at the current DK talent trees, looks like any of the trees will be most likely able to tank easily in 5-mans and 10-mans, so I dunno. They are getting ridiculous amounts of armor and parry in the Blood Tree, too.I'm just a confused, small gnome tank. And that's the reason why I'll spec Fury come Wrath (Titan's Grip is awesome).

It looks to me that druids will be the superior high-threat off tank for burn-down mobs. Pallies will be the aoe tank, but druids will be able to quickly pick up 2-3 adds, pop Beserk and allow the raid to quickly single target them down without having to wait for threat, then go back to cat & dps.
Yeah, that would seem good, and considering Druids need a niche, burst threat might be it.It's not the case at the moment, however, since Warriors do most TPS. I think Blizz themselves are confused lol
